We want to move our filter from under the deck to beside the deck. Asthetically we love it under the deck but I hate crawling under the deck and bumping my head and hanging upside down over the deck hole to do anything with the filter. Besides disconnecting the hoses what else needs to be done? We won't be able to get a hand truck underneath to move the filter so I imagine we need to remove the sand. It's 3-4 seasons old. Do we replace the sand or save it and put it back in after moving it?
How do we remove the sand? What else do we need to do to make sure not to damage anything?
